Attractive, popular, highly regarded and sophisticated – we imagine most restaurants would love to be like The Rib Room when they grow up. The cool decor is defiantly minimal but the friendly staff won’t ever allow it to feel cold or soulless. Plush booths and crisp white tabletops fill the intimate room and instil a confidence in the meal to come. The restaurant’s 15 cuts of meat from Argentina, Australia, Canada, Ireland and the US are the dining highlights. We recommend keeping it simple with just a single side dish (try the baked potato with sour cream, for instance) and a side sauce of herby steak butter, and if you’re after a starter, don’t miss the ocean scallops, which are beautifully textured, flavoursome and delightfully presented.
Open Sun-Thu 12.30pm-3pm, 7pm-midnight; Fri-Sat 7pm-midnight. Jumeirah Emirates Towers, Sheikh Zayed Road (04 319 8088).
